The victims were produced on Monday before the District and Session Judge of Badin and their statements recorded.

The Judge ordered the police to arrest the feudal right away and initiate legal proceedings against him for human rights violation, Samaa TV reported today.

Pakistani courts, buoyed by its newly acquired Judicial independence after restoration in March last year, are now actively pursuing cases of human rights violations including cases of corruption and gross abuse of power.
